France’s number one stallion.
By the legendary Voltaire out of a Nimmerdor / Le Mexico mare! He was a Grand Prix winner and his progeny are already out and winning at Grand Prix level. According to GFE principal, Arnaud Evain:
‘A son of the famous Voltaire, Kannan has become available after a fabulous competitive career, just at the time that his progeny are showing exceptional ability on the international stage. Power, carefulness and a tough competitive spirit characterize the progeny of Kannan.’
Kannan is currently number 2 in the World Showjumping Breeding Rankings, after being in the top 4 for the last four years. When we assess these rankings and look at only stallions that are alive and covering he is number 1, and by a large margin. This proves that Kannan is no one horse stallion and is producing offspring in large numbers that are all competitive at the highest level. There is not a week that goes by without a Kannan offspring placing or winning at the highest level in Europe.
Kannan offspring are competing successfully at Grand Prix and World Cup level in Europe. Recent additions to his already impressive list of results include Pippa Funnel winning the CIC* at Fontainbleau riding Billy Beware, Steve Guerdat placing second in the World Cup Showjumping Final riding Nino des Buissonnets and Manuel Anon placing 3rd in the Global Champions Tour, Weisbaden competition riding Baldo. Nino des Buissonnets was also the show jumping gold medal winner at the London Olympics in 2012!
Kannan’s offspring demonstrate enormous scope and a consistent technique over a fence. Riders report these horses fit into the team very well, have a great trainable temperament and an unstoppable will to win. All of these qualities are complemented by the necessary carefulness required from the modern day performance horse.
Serious breeders should not look past Kannan. A service to Kannan offers breeders the opportunity to have the confidence to invest in the best Europe has to offer whilst still having the security of a Live Foal Guarantee (subject to terms and conditions).
